Brian has been a CLfT Instructor since 2014. He graduated from Unity College in Maine in 2009 with a B.S. in Wildlife and again in 2013 from South Dakota State University with a M.S. in Wildlife Sciences. He began his career working as an Education and Outreach Coordinator with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever in Kansas. In 2015, Brian returned to North Dakota to work in the Education Section of the Game and Fish Department where he works to share his knowledge and passion for the state’s rich hunting heritage.
Brian’s fondest memories of his youth are of hunting with his Father on the hardwood ridges surrounding his childhood home in the Pocono Mountains of eastern Pennsylvania. He will always be a proud Pennsylvanian, but the vast public lands and abundant hunting and fishing opportunities of the west forced him to call the prairie home. He currently resides in Bismarck, North Dakota with his Yellow Labrador, Patton.
